Happy Endings
But note that dual massage systems are illegal in the ACBL after the first trick.
Using brigemates for imp pairs
In ACBLScore, do F9 then Change Scoring Method after the initial game setup.
Using brigemates for imp pairs
There is no difference from running a match-point pairs, unless you are running something like Swiss Pairs where the later round pairings depend on the outcome of earlier rounds. Just set up the movement in your scoring program as you would for matchpoint pairs. Note that the BM table units ...
About Polling Players (II)
I believe the rule is "try not to include in the same poll players who are regular partners [i]of each other[/i]". Having players with the same frame of mind as the player whose action we are examining may well be helpful; having too many pollees with the same ...

Fantoni Nunes and the German Doctors...
I am reading this differently (or misunderstanding your comment). The case dismissed was not the case [i]against[/i] FN, it was the appeal [i]by[/i] FN. The legal language in which this is couched ("... dismissed the precautionary request ... of FN") is not entirely clear, however.
Variations
The twist normally travels with the board.
